either because they are frustrated or because they want to get more training or education. some people are finding jobs. economists have looked at different calculations of which is the better factor -- the bigger factor, or people dropping out or getting more education and training and my understanding is that there are equal roles being played by each for spirit -- each force. but there are definitely some dropping out. some of that is the baby boom generation starting to retire. it may not be a "dropping out," but people choosing to retire and leave their jobs. some older people may have lost their jobs and cannot find new ones and are taking early social security benefits. there is some of that. host: mr. r doane, the labor force participation -- mr. nardone, a labor force position rick, please explain this. guest: the take the people who are employed in those who are unemployed and combine them and you get what is called the labour force. divide that by the population in at 16 and over and you're of the force participation rate. is the proportion of the population that is either e
broadcasting funds support shows including sesame street that provide educational programming for children especially those that cannot afford to go to preschool. the total money going to pbs accounts for roughly .00013% of the federal budget. that's a very small amount. despite utterly nominal amount of money on the table the president has been trumpeting the big bird message since the debate. >> thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. >> governor romney plans to let wall street run wild again but he's going to bring down the hammer on sesame street. >> elmo has been seen in a white -- in a white suburban. he's driving for the boarder. >> here on the panel after a hellish commute mother jones washington bureau chief david corn author of the book "47%" uncovering the romney video that rocked the 2012 election. it ain't a over but that video did its share of rocking. >> before big bird hit the scene. >> exactly. david, let's talk about the big bird ad. a good thing for team obama to be using or a bad thing? >> you know, i've always been a fan in politics of what i call
days to go, and we're focused on voter registration, getting our voters more educated, and then out to vote, and when you talk about all those polls, one poll up, one poll down, what i'm focused on is the polls opening, at least in pennsylvania and many other places across the country, on november 6th, because the only poll that matters is the poll on election day. polls open at 7:00 in philly, close at 8:00. that's what we're talking about. >> okay. let's take a look, president obama spoke to his hollywood backers last night at an l.a. fund-raiser. it sounded like he realized how bad things went. he wasn't as good as you were right now, mayor nutter, but let's take a look. >> everybody here is incredible professionals, such great friends, and they just perform flawlessly night after night. i can't always say the same. back in 2008 everybody always remembers the victory, but they don't always remember the bumps in the road. things always look good in retrospect, but in the middle of it we made all kinds of mistakes. we goofed up. i goofed up, but the american people carried us forwa
. the headline is that racial preferences and higher education definitely came under attack today. >> let's remind everyone, ten years ago, the u.s. supreme court upheld affirmative action, less than, 2003, what has changed since then? >> this case is factually similar to the university of michigan case nine years ago. what has changed is the court, justice sandra day o'connor wrote the majority opinion nine years ago upholding diversity as a compelling interest. o'connor is no longer on the court. today the person to watch is the justice anthony kennedy, not against the idea, but hasn't found the affirmative action program that is narrowly tailored enough for him to like it. >> what about the fact that justice elana kagan, she recused herself here, there could be a tie they could decide four justices one way, four another. what happens in that case? >> in that case, the previous precedent stands. so the university of michigan case from nine years ago would continue to be the law of the land if they ended up in a 4-4 tie. >> all right, joe johns, thank you very much. u.s. supreme court to

it says is it's a matter of priorities. who stands with the priorities that education, young people, all that. so that's why they're using it in that way. and i think that will play into the debate tonight just the way andrea was talking about because when you get to medicare, i think that biden has a clearly different point of view. when you get to spending, when you get to taxes. i think that's what big bird was about in terms of that ad saying to especially women, look at the priorities of the republicans -- >> women don't sit at home at night worrying about big bird. i'm telling you right now. i was not up thinking about big bird. i can assure you of that. the fact they're talking about big bird makes them look very, very unserious. and no offense to my five-year-old nephew, but he is talk being big bird. mitt romney is a bully, it's just so fifth grade. we knew that obama lacked maturity before. now we know for sure that his campaign does. >> steve: all right. >> i'm glad you're not worried about that. >> steve: "the five" is stuff a popular show. thank you for joining us live. >> h
